Double-Header: Two Talks for the Price of One

When: Tue March 13, 2012 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Mike Higgins and Jezra Lickter

Location: O'Reilly Media

What is longer than a lightning talk but shorter than a normal talk? This month you’ll find out as we have two different speakers giving talks:

Mike Higgins:

Title: “Life without an Evil Cellphone Company”
Summary: Why Cellphone Companies are Evil. How I hacked a ‘Droid phone without realizing it. Using Skype and Wifi hotspots to make calls on my Droid phone without a cellphone carrier. Trouble in paradise (things are not working perfectly yet).


Title “Creating a media player that suits my needs”
Summary: Jezra will discuss the what, why, and how of creating media playing software that is (hopefully) suitable for a low end HTPC.
